The Reissue Thread!

Discussion in 'Comeback corner' started by Eric Generic, Oct 19, 2009.

  1. Well let's face it, reissues by and large don't sell that much (many a CD reissue has 1000 or 2000 copies as a first run) so I'd expect prices to rise slightly. But it's ridiculous when it's getting to the stage when you could easily mistake the price of a CD box set for a vinyl box set.

    I've been buying less box sets because everything's usually up on Spotify anyway and I only find myself playing a handful of tracks more than once.

    I have also noticed the cost of CD box sets often halving in price about 6 or so months down the line - so I'll give the Bowie box a miss for now...
  2. It's a crap shoot....some sets go down, some go up to crazy levels. Loving The Alien is £250-400 now, was still about 80 quid not long ago. Brilliant Adventure's still in the "lower than originally" price bracket (under £70) but who knows what that'll end up being.

    Blaahh and djessie like this.
  4. Looks very good. I hope it’s the 7” of Last Days Of Summer on CD finally and not the extended version.
  5. In my head I totally saw that bloke from S Club 7.
  6. What an icon too.

  7. [long pause] …no.
  8. Well, for us late 90s/early 00s Kids he was anyway!

    Sort of.

  9. 17 discs of Imagination?!

    Is that for real, or.......just an illusion.
  10. November 4th sees Now Yearbook 1985
  11. Finally the Older reissue is almost upon us. Whatever its issues, I can’t wait to play this phenomenal, gorgeous record loud on my turntable.
    SlowBurn and WhatKindOfKylie? like this.
  12. AT LAST!

    (But I do see an Oops with the tracklisting...19 is in black, not white).
  13. I'm so happy they have resumed the 80s and aren't working their way back to 1970. Really looking forward to the Yearbook Extras for 86-89 and some real rarities, give us Su Pollard, Glenn & Chris, Stefan Dennis and Taja Sevelle!
  14. The 1985 set looks spot on to me, in terms of content. And it's been sequenced by someone competent.
  15. He groped a friend of mine in a toilet many years ago. Sadly that was no illusion.
  16. And knows how to take dick.
  17. FINALLY, back to the 80s! At last NOW Music, and thank you too.
  18. The 85 yearbook extra album will be interesting.

    I am glad it has gone forward to 1985.
  19. #Thriller40 update !
    Got The Hots
    This is another song written by Rod Temperton for Thriller but it didn’t make the cut. It was ultimately included on certain versions of the King of Pop compilation album released in various international markets in 2008, but one interesting note about this song is that the assistant engineer who worked on the June, 1982 sessions with engineer Brent Avril when this song was recorded is Nelson Hayes. As some may know, Nelson actually became a trusted member of Michael’s security detail under Bill Bray!

    So, it looks like it's the already released version we bought back in 2008... But thanks for the Nelson Hayes note !

    cd2 recap
    2. Got the Hots
    5. Behind The Mask
    7. The Toy
    10. She's Trouble

  20. Same, no reason they can't do the 70s alongside it, but want the rest of the 80s especially.
